Samuelson’s Rocks – a Hidden Secret in Joshua Tree National Park

At first glance, Joshua Tree National Park seems like an open book with its iconic Joshua trees and famous giant rock boulders. However, if you’re willing to look further, this park is full of super cool hidden secrets. One of them is the Chasm of Doom. Another one is Samuelson’s Rocks. Samuelson’s Rocks are these flat-sided rocks where John Samuelson chiseled his unique declaration on life into their surfaces, back in the early 1900s. Because the Rocks are not an “official” site, there is no sign or marked trail to point the way. Therefore, most visitors to Joshua Tree National Park have never seen them, let alone even know they exist.
